  • About two dozen members of the I-Tri (Transformation Through Triathlon) program, under the watchful eye of a half-dozen instructors, rode bikes Saturday on and around the Maidstone Park course in Springs that is to serve as the hub of two coming triathlons — one for adults 17 and over on June 21, and one for youth on July 13.

    The course is to be the same for both triathlons — a 300-yard swim in Gardiner’s Bay, a 7-mile bike, and a 1.5-mile run.

  • “Oh good,” I said as I cast a glance at my phone on returning to the office on the cusp of Memorial Day weekend. “No one’s called.”

    I’d been to Citarella and BookHampton, and was pleased to tell Bill at the bookstore that it was “just as crowded as Citarella,” which was saying something inasmuch as they had six people at Citarella’s registers and still couldn’t keep up with the volume.

  • There were about 40 enthusiastic youngsters at the Punt, Pass, and Kick contest that the East Hampton Youth Football and Basketball organization put on at East Hampton High’s turf field Saturday, though Don Reese, the group’s president, said he would have liked to have seen 80.

  • Eight athletes, a coach, and two teams are to be inducted into East Hampton High School’s Hall of Fame during the homecoming weekend in September.

    The inductees-to-be were announced at the high school’s athletic awards dinner last night.

  • After the winter season roller hockey final at the Sportime Arena in Amagansett had ended on Feb. 25, with the Black team having edged Tyler Jarvis’s Grey team 7-6, Khloe Goncalves, the Grey team’s 16-year-old goalie, said she’d be back.

    And indeed she was, in the spring final on May 20, allowing the Blue team only two goals as Jarvis and Goncalves’s other Red team teammates poured in 10 — six by Jarvis himself, who is the league’s premier player.

  • Ryan Pilla, “The Car Doctor,” who became the Sports Car Club of America’s national Mazda champion last fall, spent the winter with his Car Doctor World crew, including Rod Davidson (The Nurse) and Erik Palmieri (The Head Surgeon), building nine sporty road and beach-friendly cars, most of which he’s got for sale.

  • We have Danny Walsh, the golfing partner of my brother-in-law, to thank for what I’ve called “the Taj Mahal of outdoor showers.”

  • The mad dash from the Reutershan parking lot in East Hampton Village to Main Beach, otherwise known as the Bonac on Board to Wellness 5K, was contested under sunny skies on May 21.

    A 21-year-old Golden Gloves boxer from Springs, Luis Mancilla, who afterward said he may turn pro in the fall, was the winner, in 17 minutes and 21 seconds, besting a field of 690 entrants, the vast majority of them junior high students.

  • Building on an already impressive season, a number of the East Hampton High School girls track team’s divisional competitors were in line for berths at the state qualifier meet that is to be held this weekend at Port Jefferson High.

  • Cameron Gurney, a former Amagansetter who’s in charge of large animal care at Cornell University’s Hospital for Animals, would like horse owners out here to know that now they no longer need to send their animals far afield should surgery or preventive care be required, given the fact that Cornell’s vet school has taken over what had been an abandoned $17 million clinic near Belmont Park.
